The New Jersey Devils acquired defenseman Ryan Murray from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday for a fifth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.
The 27-year-old Murray, the No. 2 overall pick in 2012, had two goals and seven assists in 27 games last season with the Blue Jackets, and added goal in nine playoff games.
In 347 regular-season games in seven NHL seasons, all with Columbus, he has 15 goals and 95 assists.
The move came on the eve of the start of NHL free agency which begins Friday at noon.
